NCN is proud to be a part of Purdue's SURF program, which will run May 22 - August 4 in 2017. Applications will be accepted starting January 3, 2017. Download a flyer here to share with your department.
Go to the Purdue University College of Engineering SURF program for more information and to apply. In the application,
If you are interested in working on a nanoHUB project in SURF, you will need to follow the instructions below and be sure you talk about specific NCN projects directly on your SURF application, in the text box for projects that most interest you.
1. Carefully read the NCN project descriptions (https://nanohub.org/groups/ncnsurf/ncnresearch) and select which project(s) you are most interested in and qualified for. It pays to do a little homework to prepare your application.
2. Select the Network for Computational Nanotechnology (NCN) / nanoHUB as one of your top choices.
3. In the text box that asks about your “understanding of your role in a project that you have identified”, you may discuss up to three NCN projects that most interest you. For each NCN project, be sure to tell us why you are interested in the project and how you meet the required skill and coursework requirements.
DO NOT enter any text in the area titled "Faculty Member and Research Project" If you have already identified a Purdue faculty member who has agreed to work with you if accepted into SURF.
NCN SURF projects involve a lot of computer coding, and while very rewarding, are not a traditional experimental lab experience.
